Chemical and petrochemicals

Industrial and household items made from petrochemical products are increasingly capturing fields of applications that have traditionally used components based on metals, wood and glass. Petrochemical products improve the living standards, ingrained in all spheres of activity. The use of polymers and plastics in the national economy makes it possible to solve previously inaccessible tasks of the most complex technical level. The petrochemical industry has been and remains an accumulator of innovations and a point of technological and economic growth.

In the economic system of each country, there are always sectoral blocks that play the greatest role in shaping trends of socio-economic development. In Russia, these include the fuel and energy sector (FES), a complex of resource management industries, including the petrochemical industry. Currently, they are the basis for the development of new industries and the basis for the modernization of conventional sectors of economy. The petrochemical complex of the country, representing one of the most sophisticated complexes of the national economy, is a strategic branch of the Russian economy, enabling our economy to take a quantum leap: from the model of exporting natural resources to the model of manufacturing of high-tech products.

The petrochemical industry remains one of the most attractive investment sectors of the economy of the Republic of Tatarstan. The preservation and development of the petrochemical industry is one of the priorities pursued by the region's economic growth policy, which has been being implemented in the Republic of Tatarstan. Today, the petrochemical complex of the republic, its production and personnel potential are the property not only of Tatarstan, but also of the entire petrochemical industry of the Russian Federation, where the republic holds a leading position.

In the conditions of continuous increase in requirements for the quality of petrochemical products against the background of unstable feedstock prices and increasing operating costs, the petrochemical companies of TAIF Group adequately withstand fierce competition in the industry and strengthen their positions as one of the recognized leaders of the petrochemical industry, creating products in demand on the world and Russian markets.

TAIF Group's chemical and petrochemical companies produce 581 products, the major share of which falls on synthetic rubbers, various grades and types of polyethylene, polypropylene, polycarbonate and styrene plastics.

TAIF Group's chemical and petrochemical companies continuously expand their production capacities for the main products. Thus, for the period from 1995 to 2020, ethylene production was increased from 809 to 1,257 thousand tons, and polymer production from 664 to 2,312 thousand tons.

TAIF Group produces 33% of polymers produced in the Russian Federation (by types of products produced by TAIF Group), including the share of rubbers produced by TAIF Group is 64% of the Russian production of this product.

TAIF Group is the only manufacturer of polycarbonates, EVA and some high-demand grades of polyethylene in Russia.

Much attention is paid to the marketing of the products and the expansion of their presence in the global markets. The largest consumers of TAIF Group's petrochemical products are the world leading brands of the tire industry: Continental, Pirelli, Michelin, Bridgestone, and Goodyear.
